EQ Anti Age Collagen Premium is not particularly safety tested and documented for pregnant and breast-feeding women. Presently we are not aware of any studies looking at transfer of low molecular collagen in the umbilical cord and/or across placenta; meaning the foetus might digest traces of collagen. According to the producer the risk for any associated safety concern is very low; however it is generally important to take precautions when pregnant and breast-feeding and when infants are involved. Collagen is a natural protein that is not uncommon in food, and hydrolysed low molecular weight collagen is a break-down product of natural collagen and thus not uncommon for the body.
